    It has been a while since I have posted any knife shots here. Life sorta has a way of getting in the way sometimes. I forged this one out of a retired Army 5-ton truck leaf spring. A friend wanted a "cleaver type" knife and this hog is what came up with. The blade is a touch longer than 9 inches and sports a quilted maple handle stained with aqua fortis. The spine is 1/4" thick. I used the knife to hack up some venison and veggies for stew a few nights ago and it performed very well. Thanks for looking.:)

    I'm looking for something like that that will fit into the official chopping gauge box, barely. I like the butdaforge look of yours.

    I love cleaver-style knives. That's a nice one.

    Very nice. Really like the handle. That blade is definitely a chopper.
    Thanks for the picture

    Thanks for the gracious comments gentlemen. I put the hole in the blade so that it can be hung from a hook. Most of the cleavers I have collected also have such a hole.
